The last 4 computers I've purchased at home I've built myself. If you ever want to save money on a system, learn a little bit about computers and get more power for your buck… click the barebones link on any major online computer store. With my son heading off to IUPUI (n'abalị a), achọrọ m iju ya nnukwu usoro!
Enwere m ego na akaụntụ PayPal m, yabụ ekpebiri m ịchọ ụlọ ahịa kọmputa nke jiri PayPal eme ihe dịka usoro ịkwụ ụgwọ.

If you go to the product page, you'll notice two very strange things that the average person (like me) would miss:
- Enweghị fan for the processor! This is an absolute necessity for any modern processor and there's no reason why it should be left out of a barebones kit.
- Remember the hard drive? They provided a 200Gb Maxtor EIDE hard drive. Sounds good, huh? Perhaps… except that the system is optimized for Serial ATA (SATA)! With my son's additional components, he doesn't have anywhere to plugin the hard drive.
So my son headed off to college today without the computer. It's sitting in many pieces upon the kitchen table… of no use to anyone. Arrrgh. The documentation even sucks. I remember when you used to get a book with a motherboard, now I have a poster with no details. This was disappointing. Of course there are no returns on the Hard Drive, either. Ugh. Perhaps I'll give it away on the site if I can't find a use for it elsewhere.
Naanị isi mkpịsị aka m nwere maka TigerDirect was on the swift delivery of the parts. From payment (release) to front door, only 2 business days went by. Not too shabby. Here's hoping the next couple parts make it here by Saturday! Bill ga-alaghachi na Sọnde - enwere m olile anya na m nwere ike ịhazi usoro ya!
